Vegan Dinner Recipes
1. Chunky Vegetable & Roasted Tomato Marinara Sauce – My Natural Family
I got this recipe from my mother who got it from my grandmother. She got it from her mother in law who came straight from Sicily. My family is Italian and this recipe has been handed down from generation to generation. It can be made from fresh or canned tomatoes. Of course, it is best if fresh tomatoes are used. This is a pretty standard recipe. I’ve been known to use it for lasagna sauce often or it can be used for pizza sauce or for any other recipe you need a basic tomato sauce for. The instructions say to cook it for 20 minutes for your convenience. But truth be known the secret is to let it simmer on the stove top for 8 hours and let all the liquid boil off. At the same time, all the flavors blend together. The whole neighborhood can smell the sauce when it’s cooked for so long. You can simmer it in a crock pot too probably. Of course, if we don’t want a vegan meal we add meatballs and pork chops to it. That’s where the best flavor comes from. I make a big huge pot full and freeze the leftovers in containers that hold the amount I would use for a single meal.
2. Black Bean Soup – Gluten Free Daddy
This soup is good because it is made from scratch with good wholesome ingredients. It has a deep rich smoky flavor from cooking all day in the crockpot. I always make a big batch then I use it throughout the week in tons of different ways. I’ve found that it’s good served on top of nachos, as part of a taco salad, drizzled on hot dogs plus it’s a good dip for flatbread. My favorite is to serve it with my homemade tortillas using my own recipe. 4 Ingredient Clean Eating Tortillas Recipe
3. Bursted Tomato & Pesto Baked Spaghetti Squash – My Natural Family
This baked spaghetti squash is one of the easiest side dish recipes you could ever make. All you do is bake it in the oven, put some browned butter on it and then sprinkle some mizithra cheese on it. It creates a special side dish that is not only gluten-free but also clean eating and Keto and Vegan. You won’t be sorry you tried it. You’ll want to make it again and again.
4. Southwest Loaded Sweet Potato with Tomatillo Crema – Clean Eating Recipes
Baked Sweet Potatoes are delicious by themselves but when you add this tomatillo crema sauce it makes the recipe. Don’t miss it, it’s a little below the instructions for the loaded sweet potato. I stopped eating loaded baked potatoes a long time ago. All the stuff I put on them wasn’t really healthy, like bacon, cheese, and sour cream. Now I just make this tomatillo crema sauce and I love it. The pico de gallo is wonderful on it too. This is a great meal for anyone but it’s also great if you’re on a Vegan diet. The tomatillos give it a southwestern flair with a little zing.
5. One Pan Mexican Quinoa – Damn Delicious
I love to make one pan dishes, they are so easy to throw in a pan and then they do the rest! This Mexican quinoa recipe is no exception. It is a light and nutritious dish the whole family can enjoy!
6. Orange Cauliflower – Yummily Yours
Cauliflower – Bell Peppers – Corn Starch – Flour – Oil – Garlic – Ground Ginger – Orange – Broth – Soy Sauce – Sriracha – Sesame Seeds – Green Onion
This is a vegan twist on a classic Chinese dish, Orange Chicken. The dish is cauliflower instead of chicken topped with a sweet and sour orange zest sauce.
7. Mexican Cornbread Pot Pie – Vegan Yak Attack
Coconut Oil – Red Onion – Bell Peppers – Jalapeno – Black Beans – Corn – Chili Powder – Cumin – Chipotle Powder – Smoked Paprika – Cayenne Pepper – Real Salt – Kale – Flax Seed – Cornmeal – Flour – Onion Powder – Non-Dairy Milk – Agave Nectar – Green Onions – Vegan Sour Cream – Fresh Cilantro
This recipe looks like a fun and delicious dish. It is a piece of cornbread on top hashed veggies with toppings add to the flavor of the dish.
8. Lentil Shepherd’s Pie – Delish Knowledge
This is a vegan version of the traditional shepherd’s pie recipe with lentils instead of meat. This is a dish we ate a lot while growing up, it has really grown on me.
9. Pesto, Lentil and Basil Hand Pies – The Whinery
This is a fun recipe for cute little pastries that are filled with pesto and lentils. They are light and work well as part of a meal or as a snack on the go.
